As a child, Andrea found her creative outlet through rewriting the lyrics to the songs she heard blaring through the speakers of her mom’s 1980-something Dodge Charger. In her teens, she found herself drawn to pop and country music and started penning lyrics filled with the pining of teenage dreams. She continued writing songs well into her twenties, but eventually found her way to college where she studied marketing and public relations.
It was in her final semester at Middle Tennessee State University that she finally put pen to paper and decided to write a full-length novel. Her first novel, Bittersweet, never made it past the hands of her friends. In November of 2013, Andrea made the commitment to write 50K words in
30 days as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). That novel, Life is But a Dream, was released in 2014.
Andrea’s follow-up novel, Happily Ever Never, is set for release in the fall of 2018.
Andrea currently lives in Nashville with her husband, Jeff, and their two children, Jackson and Annabeth. She has a BS in Mass Communication from MTSU and an MBA from the University of Memphis.
